The food is okay. The atmosphere on Sunday evenings is not the same as a Friday or Saturday night. The calamari was oily and extra chewy. The pasticio was really good.

If you are in Ybor City and you want good authentic Greek food here is the place for you. Don't be worried if they break a bunch of dishes it is part of the show!

Lunch with the wife on a Saturday afternoon. Not busy. Seated immediately. Ordered the appetizer platter (hummus, baba ghanouj, tzatziki, tirokafteri and dolmades). It was very good. All flavors were mild, so even the "spicy" tirokafteri was not too spicy. The spanokopita was very good and the gyro platter also good. Not the most exciting Greek food we've had, but... More

So, I was here in August 2016 and had the gyro platter based on a recommendation by a local police officer. Seriously, this place was awesome. I didn't know I would get a show from the staff along with such great food!

Fantastic food, very friendly servers, and a comfortable atmosphere. You can sit outside if you choose. The gyro platter is a hit. I always get this, and you cannot go wrong with the delicious gyro meat with a hearty Greek salad. You cant leave here hungry!

Me and my wife stopped and I was not sure to eat in a Greek restaurant somewhere in Tampa Florida but I learned my lesson. The food was excellent. I had a salad with chicken, my wife grilled pork and together a starter of grilled eggplant with feta cheese. A very well balanced dished with the perfect Mediterranean touch. I... More

In Ybor City of all places where you can dine alfresco or inside or just hangout at the bar. White napkins along with broken plates make you feel right at home. Service is divinely sincere with great recommendations from an extensive menu. Drinks refreshingly frosty perfect for a hot summer evening. Chose char grilled lamb chops that were juicy and... More

Excellent food and dining experience. Great place for lunch or dinner. They dance around break plates and throw napkins at night it's rather entertaining. I would recommend for a date spot since the atmosphere is fun and the prices are very high.

Ate here twice at lunch during recent trip - food was good - restrooms were very clean. Service was a little rushed as though there were not quite enough servers available for the lunch crowd. Convenient - easy to walk to if you are downtown.
